My usual instructor was on vacation for my lesson this week, so I had another instructor and another college student from the barn as my 'instructors'. We went out to the cross-country course and did some jumping, and them Heidi suggested that we go for a gallop. It was my first time galloping and it was so much fun! We went along the side of a big field. I was riding Cody, one of the lesson horses, and he is usually very, very slow but I actually had to hold him back- prancing in place- then. I LOVED it. Cody is the kind of horse who just stretches out, and really flat out gallops. He also throws in happy bucks with makes it interesting :). It was so so so much fun! I couldn't get him to stop, though! He really really loved it. Okay, sorry for the long post but it was my first time and SO much fun :).
